We investigate the wave-particle interaction in the ionospheric plasma with longitudinal plasma and electromagnetic waves generated during active space experiments with simultaneous injection of electron and xenon ion beams from the Intercosmos 25 (IK-25) spacecraft. Some results of our study of the beam-plasma instability relative to the longitudinal wave excitation during the electron beam injection were early presented [Plasma Phys. Rep. — 2007. — 33, N 11. — P. 995—1013]. A specific feature of the active experiment carried out at orbits 201 and 202 was that charged particle flows were injected in the same direction along the magnetic field lines 0 B in such a way that produced the oblique beam-into-beam injection. Some results of the beam-plasma interaction for this configuration were registered by the double satellite system consisting of the IK-25 station and Magion-3 subsatellite. The emphasis is on the study of the electromagnetic wave excitation in different frequency ranges and the acceleration of energetic charged particles by the beam-induced waves in the nearsatellite plasma. Excitation of electromagnetic waves (whistlers) on the first harmonic of electron cyclotron resonance for normal Doppler effect during electron beam injection into ionospheric plasma is considered.
